Great small group tour. The guides were very informative about the history of the region, and helpful about the potential challenges on some of the walking trails. A lot packed into a day trip!
This was a good tour overall to get a taste of the Coromandel. If I could do it again, I would skip the Driving Creek Railway and allow for more time at Cathedral Cove. Our tour guide was nice and he took us to the Hot Water beaches in time to experience them and later to a great place for lunch. However, if I ever return, I'll probably do it without a tour, so as not to be on a time crunch. The return journey was along a beautiful scenic beach route and it would have been more enjoyable if we weren't flying to get back to Auckland by a certain time.
This was our favorite tour during our stay in North Island Museum. We had a very informative guide who made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We got to see many lambs, green pastures, and views of the rugged coastline. My wife and I especially enjoyed Cathedral Cove and the adjoining beach--the scenery is absolutely stunning. We stopped by the forest for an antique train ride, which was interesting but not the best use of our time. Another great spot was Hot Water Beach. Mini tubes of lava lie beneath the sand, and mini pools of hot water collect on the beach, giving many families and couples their own private jacuzzis. I would say the highlights were the hike down to Cathedral Cove and the free time we had to swim in the Tasman Sea/Pacific Ocean.
The two beaches we visited were quite amazing. Cathedral Caves beach is visually stunning with sandstone formations and caves along the beach. The Hot Water beach was really unusual. On approximately 100 feet of beach you can dig into the sand and hot water bubbles up creating these lovely warm spaces to soak in. Unique and fun....
Fantastic day in the coromandel.... made even better by our very knowledgeable tour guide/driver Alexander! Every place was different and the views amazing. Loved the railway trip especially. Also had good alternative option for us given we couldnt do cathedral cove too steep in way back up. Got to enjoy the views and the beach. Packed a lot in, small van comfort was 3xcrllent and the slightly higher price than others was totally worth it. Lunch was also excellent at hot beach cafe!
A very long day but we saw so much that it was well worth it. Options were available for those of us who had mobility issues and that was definitely appreciated. The Coromandel is gorgeous!
It was amazing trip , so much to see with excellent tour guy, enjoyed every moment of it and look forward to take it again.
The vendor on this trip was Bush and Beach. Best tour of the several that we took with Viatour. There were 8 of us and that led a lot of chatting about experiences. Driver was friendly and drew each person into the conversation. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the history and the plants and animals in the area. GREAT stop for lunch-best meal I had on our 30 day trip to Australia and NZ. I had an issue with one of the hikes due to sore foot and he found me and my husband an alternative that was close to the water but not as strenuous as the other hike. I enjoyed talking to the tour leader about climate change and what NZ was doing to conserve their environment.
O passeio é bastante longo, mas não é cansativo, porque o guia que nos acompanhou foi muito educado, acolhedor. Era profundo conhecedor do trajeto, e nos deu informações sobre as formações geológicas, sobre a história do local, com diversas paradas ao longo do percurso para fotografias. Coromandel é um dos lugares mais bonitos da Nova Zelândia! A Cathedral Cove é LINDA! Sensacional o passeio!
I'm a Narnia Fan and so this tour was a must-do for me. I visited the Coromandel Peninsula mid-February and it was a rainy and cloudy day. The schedule for the day is tidal-dependant.
The train journey was nice and at the top there was a lookout platform, not much walking involved. The whole experience lasted about one hour.
The sky started to clear up and the weather was beautiful. Instead taking us to the Cathedral Cove right away to make use of the nice weather, we stopped at an unspectacular waterfall and went for a lovely 10-min stroll through a Kauri forest. We then had lunch and by the time we've finished lunch it was raining again. I felt bumped because the Cathedral Cove on a rainy and dark day is not the same as on a nice one. However, the only good thing is, not too many people went there, so it was less crowded. Cathedral Cove is definitely a must-see place in New Zealand!! I wouldn't have minded to spend the whole day only at Cathedral Cove but we had 1 h 15 min including 30 min walking distance from the car park each way to get a feeling for the place. It was too little time and I felt extremely rushed. Last stop was Hot Water Beach and two boys in my group dug a hole. The water temperature ranged from cold over lukewarm to scalding hot. The guide made up for the lack of time at Cathedral Cove thanks to his informative and interesting commentary otherwise I think I would only have given three stars. I have no idea where the money went for this tour. In my opinion it is highly overpriced and I think there are many cheaper offers to get to Coromandel than this.
